Celski, who won two bronze medals in Vancouver; the first-ever Trials of women's ski jumping, which makes its Olympic debut in Sochi; and two matchups between the Canadian and U.S. women's hockey teams, who have met three times for Olympic gold.

Trials coverage begins on Friday, November 15 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN with curling from Fargo, N.D., and concludes on Sunday, January 5 at 4 p.m. ET on NBC with short track from the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns, Utah.

The vast majority of events will be live streamed via "TV Everywhere," the media industry's effort to make quality content available to authenticated customers both in and out of the home and on multiple platforms.

"We're incredibly pleased to provide unprecedented U.S. Olympic Winter Trials coverage," said Gary Zenkel, President, NBC Olympics. "Our expanded Trials coverage will contribute to bringing our Olympic presentation to new heights."
